I agree with eonibm that a lot of stock price movement is just noise.

I'm a buy and hold investor but the psychology of investing is funny. I sold 3/4 of my IPL at around 26 (I had too much of it much of it). My first reaction a sense of relief that the stock had dropped. I still own this stock, its not a good thing :).

Besides PPL, all other pipelines didn't do well this ER. ENB/ENF continues to flat/drop

Man, you aren't much fun, are you?

It's Friday and I just like watching these comical price movement of CAD pipeline... esp one I own. Beats dealing with the everyday BS at work....

Well down 3.5% now..,
It's not about 'fun'. As Donna Summer sang (bless her heart), you work 'hard for the money' so don't fritter it away trying to have fun and to make sense of those tiny movements in a stock price. Look at a stock chart for 10 years to get a perspective. Those thousands of little movements mean squat.

Don't think you get my point. Just because I'm watching the price movement, doesn't mean I'm trigger-happy and sell/buy for every 1% swing. So yes I'm indeed watching the price for fun, esp the irrational movements, while holding it...

And guess what, it did drop over 5% at one point lol. See what it'll close at....

Thanks Rod, I appreciated the T/VZ opinions as I added more T recently (I think it's oversold)

This week is quite volatile though, due to rumors flying around TWX & T merger, after the Sprint/Tmobile failed merger
I'm never sure how street takes it
Sprint/Tmobile - IMO it's bad for T if they merge (stronger competitor?), but apparently it's also bad for T if they failed (everybody dropped after the failed merger, I bought some TMUS at $55)

TWX/T merger - I don't know what to think. IMO Success = T will be more diversified by larger debt; Fail = T will find other ways and have better credit rating
Funny how everybody except USA cleared it already, and rumor says DOJ (or anti-CNN Trump?) wants CNN sold as a condition. Oh politics

Take a cue from Warren Buffet and don't even bother watching these tiny movements as they are irrelevant to the big picture, not to mention there are hundreds of them yearly on each stock. The more you watch and wonder about all the noise, the more you will have a tendency to do something.

At this rate going into tax loss selling season, enbridge could touch $40 again. Now that would be an amazing price for a long term hold.

I used to buy when it was 12%, maybe good time to refil with cash accumulated, either thinking to buy some ENB, with 5.5% yield and 12% growth over next 3 years looks quite attractive for DI

p.s. 50% of Corus drop came from dividend day (10c from 20c) and 75% drop of ENB as well from correction on dividend paid...just a good day to buy if someone interested in them (but you have to wait 1m and 3m accordingly...)

Enbridge dropped 99 cents on top of the ex dividend date adjustment (61 cents), because on Ex-Dividend date the stock price gets adjusted before the open so it doesn't get factored into the intra day price swings.
